We now have Chocolate Peppermint back in stock at ‘The Herb Patch’
Chocolate mint plants (Mentha x piperita ‘Chocolate’) are attractive, fragrant and easy to grow. As with most square-stemmed members of the mint family, growing chocolate mint can take over the area in which it is planted in the ground, readily and quickly.
The chocolate mint plant features dark-green purplish leaves and garners its name from the herb’s flavor, which is akin to a chocolate-covered mint sweet. Once harvested, the mint leaves are often dried and used as tea or chopped and consumed with fresh fruit. Mint is an ideal herb for gardeners of any skill level, as it requires little care beyond occasional watering in dry conditions. Provide your chocolate mint plant with the correct soil and sunlight to ensure it thrives.
